STEP THREE

From my personal audit, it isevident to note that I spend my time in ways that reflect my valuesto a given extent. For instance, one of my values, as stated above,is devotion. I have always set time in the evenings for devotionpurposes. Drawing evidence from the personal audit, it is salient tonote that I have embraced the value. Duty is also another value thathas been reflected from my audited personal values. I know it is myduty to do the given assignments, read the given books and take downnotes from a given section. Since I found time to accomplish theactivities, it implies that I spent time in embracing the value.

Education as one of my valuesis depicted from the fact that I took the time to review thepreviously learned topics. Moreover, having personal studies revealsthat I value education. The fact that I spent time watching the newsin some instances means that awareness is one of my values. I likebeing updated on the daily happenings and that is why I spent time inreviewing the Facebook notifications. However, I presume that Ishould make sure to improve on concentrating in one activity in orderto stay focused. Moreover, I should be committed to doing oneactivity in order to yield the best results. Compassion was alsoreflected in my personal audit file. Spending time with the lowprivileged individuals in the society is one of my values. However, Ifeel that I should schedule myself in order to articulately spendmore time with the individuals. In addition, this will aid me towardsidentifying the locations where the individuals are situated.

STEP FOUR

SMART GOALS

I: At the end of each week Itarget to cover two topics ahead of my professors in every subject

2: At the end of each day Ishould visit two places in which the underprivileged people in thesociety are situated.

STEP FIVE

Telling a story

A memorable event

THE DISABLED MAN ADMITTS

I vividly remember thatincident as if it occurred yesterday. I was with my friend Arita whenwe met this young man by the name Bill in the streets of California.He was a man with a double disability in that he was not able to walknor see. To be precise, the man was lame and blind. What wassurprising is how the man managed to come to the streets ofCalifornia alone. Driven with my value of compassion, I persuaded myfriend that we move closer to the man and try to interrogate him. Myfriend seemed to fear because many people who were passing by thestreets tended to ignore the person. To my utter surprise, I wonderedwhy people should ignore the person and yet he was disabled. Theynever even stood to greet the man.

I urged my friend that it isadvisable we drew closer to the man and try to understand hisproblems. In the first instance, the man seemed repellant since hewondered why

Young people such as can havesuch compassion for him. Without having any fear, we sat down withthe man and had a conversation. Interestingly, the man seemed toappear friendly. After having a short dialogue with him, we hired avehicle together with my friend and took the man to the place wherewe had a meal together. Since the man explained to us that he was anorphan who had been abandoned by the society because of hisdisability, I decided that I should take the man to our home placeand request my parents to take care of him. My parents never imaginedthat I would have such exquisite compassion. Equally, my friend toldme that she has never known that I valued compassion to such extent.Currently, the man is renown has he works in a reputable institution.He always mentions me and my friend as his best colleagues. Indeed,it was such a memorable event in which I demonstrated my vale ofcompassion. He admits that he owes me substantial gratitude.

STEP SIX

Leadership best practices

The name of the article that Iselected for reading is the one entitled The Focused Leader:How Effective Executives Direct Their Own-And Their Organizations’attention”.One of the reasons that made me choose the article is that I waseager to understand how I can effectively have a focus in doing onething at a time. As stated earlier, from my personal audit profile, Iaimed at enhancing my focus. For instance, when reading I should notbe watching the movie in some instances

According to the article,inward and constructive focusing aids a leader to develop emotionalintelligence (Goleman 52).However, self-awareness is the core factor in coming up withemotional intelligence. Moreover, before directing the attention offollowers a leader should leaders should first focus on theirattention. The article further pointed out that focusing on otherpeople aids the leaders in improving their emotional intelligence(Goleman 53). Itconcluded by stating that focusing outward is essential since it aidsthe leaders in managing and devising strategies for organizations(Goleman 54).

STEP SEVEN

Guided goal setting

From reading and reviewing ofthe article, I presume that as a future leader I should improve in myvalue of focus. This is because at times I direct my attention toother people while ignoring myself. As such, the focus should startfrom my personal point of view. I should also aim at developing thevirtue of self-control. Reasonably, this is because I usually find ithard in concentrating in one activity at some point. Moreover, Ishould improve on building strong relationships with other people.That means that I should set time to socialize with friends as thiswill aid me in increasing my social sensitivity.

STEP EIGHT

Smart goals

1: At the end of this week, Ishould put more focus on myself first before focusing on others.

2: At the end of each day ofthe week, one activity will be done at ago.

3: At the end of this week Ishould add three friends in my friend list.

STEP NINE

Sharing my goals

The name of the person whom Ishared my goals with is Gabriella. She is my mentor. She told me thatmy goals are realistic and they can aid in developing me as a futureleader. According to Gabriella, everything is possible provided thatone is focused.

STEP TEN

The goal that is most helpfulto me as a future leader is visiting two places where individuals whoare less privileged in the society live. This is because it will aidme in valuing all people whom I lead. The goal which I am most likelyto pursue is the one of adding three friends to my list at the end ofeach week. This is because I meet new people every day and it iseasier to make them friends through my value of compassion. The goalwhich I`m least likely to pursue is that of doing one activity at atime. Reasonably, am used to multitasking and therefore it will takea long time to stop the habit.
